Perfection is an industry leader that designs, installs and services mechanical and environmental systems in Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, Tennessee and West Virginia. Our unique approach allows us to be involved during the planning and construction phases, and beyond.
We have found that surveying multiple building under time constraints and gathering the necessary information (for Energy Conservation Projects) can be a real challenge. Using the correct tools and techniques are critical for a successful outcome. Perfection Group will cover the following survey tools and tips.
FLIR Infrared Camera - How using this tool can help uncover energy wasters in building envelope and HVAC systems.
Foot-candle Meters, Discriminators and other tools for lighting - How and when to use these tools on lighting surveys.
Retro Commissioning - Using tools like magnehelic gauges, temperature sensors, RPM gauges, flow hoods and performing visual inspections can uncover retro commissioning opportunities.
Renewables - Rules of thumb and what to look for before calling an expert.
Data Loggers - Using data loggers to uncover controls and comfort issues.
Combustion Analyzers - Determining boiler efficiency.
Practical Survey Tips - Using survey forms, digital cameras and basic tools.
